An annual tradition continues Saturday at the Perry Middle School gym when youngsters from across the area converge for the Elks Hoop Shoot free throw contest.
Any student in the Perry school system age 8-13 are eligible to compete. Shooters will be placed in age groups of 8-9, 10-11 and 12-13, with both boys and girls divisions provided.
The gym will be opened at 11 a.m. for anyone wishing to warm up. Competition will begin at 12 p.m. Perry winners will then face off against champions from ADM, Guthrie Center, Panorama and Woodward-Granger.
Local champions will advance to district competition in Storm Lake.
